Unable to Map A Network Drive to Windows Vista Machine????
Posted on 2007-12-06
I have a small wireless network where the other computers are using Windows XP. I've added a new Windows Vista Home Premium Laptop to this network and I'm having a problem trying to map a network drive over to this machine. From any of the other machines I can see this new laptop on the network but once I map the drive and try to access it the following message will appear:
Z:\ is not accessible. Access is denied.
It still shows on the list of mapped drives.
From the new laptop I can successfully map a drive to any of the other machines on the network. In other words I can map out from this machine but I cannot map into this machine from another workstation on the network. I sure this has to be something real simple that I'm missing because I'm new to Vista.
Any help will be appreciated.
